Pearl Jam released its seminal album Yield back in 1998, so the band decided to treat their fans and the wider audience with a 25th-anniversary vinyl reissue. It will include a couple of new gems, as well as a 2xLP collaboration with Vinyl Me, Please, and a live album from the era.
As Consequence of Sound notes, the band’s latest releases come in two categories: Stuff for the audiophiles, and stuff for the collectors. The vinyl reissue, of course, fits into the first category. Available on translucent red and black vinyl, the Yield reissue will mark the opening of Vinyl Me, Please’s new audiophile-grade pressing plant in Denver. Pre-orders are ongoing. Additionally, available now on streaming services is a new spatial audio mix of the album, produced and mixed by Josh Evans and Nick Rives.
Pearl Jam is also finally pressing Give Way, a live concert from the Yield era, to vinyl and CD for the first time. The album comes from a Melbourne Park, Australia show the band played on March 5th, 1998, one of their last concerts with drummer Jack Irons. The album was supposed to be released as a promotional CD back in the day but is only now going to be made available on CD and 2xLP black vinyl in celebration of Record Store Day 2023.
